Alexey Goreslavsky, Director General of the Internet Development Institute (IRI), gave an interview to RBC, in which he touched on the topic of grants for video games. During the conversation, he mentioned that last year the organization spent almost a billion rubles on video games.

Goreslavsky did not tell how this amount was distributed. He only noted that 260 million rubles out of 1 billion rubles went to the Cyberia Limited studio, the developer of “Distemper” (in 2023, Iran invested another 230 million rubles in “Distemper”).

“Now our task is to make sure that in 2024 the average gamer could choose from a set of five or six Russian games and they would be, let’s say, shameless,” Goreslavsky added.
